Students to share information about homelessness Nov. 29

Mercy-Academy-Logo-wA group of Mercy Academy seniors has been working with organizations that serve homeless individuals as part of their senior service project. The students will share their experiences during an event Nov. 29 at 7 p.m. at the school, 5801 Fegenbush Lane.

Throughout the fall semester, the group worked with the Metropolitan Housing Coalition to raise awareness about the need for affordable housing. They also took part in one of the coalition’s projects to teach adults how to test for lead paint in older houses.

The students are currently working with the Coalition for the Homeless, urging the Louisville Metro Council to provide revenue for the Louisville Affordable Housing Trust Fund.

Five other groups of Mercy seniors worked on social issues for their senior service projects, including immigration, hunger, access to education, access to healthy foods and domestic violence.

Mercy will host an open house on Jan. 5, where the public will be invited to hear details about each of the groups’ work and experiences.
